The Summer I Became a Nerd - Leah Rae Miller
3.7 This was really cute! Maddie loves comics problem is she's a popular cheerleader type who has to keep an image,hanging with the cool kids and having a quarterback boyfriend and all that so if her secret got out it for sure would be catastrophic right? But then Maddie meets a boy (oooooh) a cute nerdy boy who works at a comic book shop they start to hang out and go to RPG games things are great except for the fact that Maddie feels she has to hide this side of her, keeping Logan secret from her friends therefore ruining her relationships. The Summer I Became A Nerd is a great book about being true to yourself.

7/10 Awesome! Yea this movie was great, a terrific end for the Iron Man trilogy. The bad guy is using human bombs to wreak havoc and who's gonna stop him? Iron Man! That's who. Tony's having a tough time with anxiety attacks and a slight obsession with working on his suits, an old friend appears but is she really a friend? The movie is really good, action packed and full of heart-stopping moments def a must see.

4/5 As a series progresses the story may start to wear thin but at book eleven I still love Kitty Norville. In Kitty's latest great adventure strangers have appeared in Denver; a Vampire priest who wants to recruit Rick for his mission of God and a rogue werewolf wanting to join Kitty's pack. Kitty sure has a lot on her plate what with having to care for her pack, fighting off obtruders, fighting Roman and her talkshow. Things sure aren't looking good.
Chosen at Nightfalll - C. C. Hunter
4 Stars. The final book of the series. Sigh, all good things come to an end and in the case of Chosen at Nightfall it was a great end.In this final entry Kiley comes back to Shadow Falls comes back to troubles; working on forgiving Lucas and a creepy ghost following her asking for her to kill someone then a magical sword starts following Kiley around not to mention Mario still wanting her dead and her mother dating a guy whom she rightfully doesn't trust. Oh the drama. An exciting read that wrapped up nicely I love this series and I'm sad to see it end.

Sweet Peril - Wendy Higgins
4 Stars. I'd been waiting for this one for a while it's the sequel to Sweet Evil. Anna is half demon half angel her job is supposed to be leading people into a life of drug abuse but her dad isn't like the other big bad demons,he actually loves his daughter and doesn't force her to work. When a ghost appears and informs Anna of a prophecy in which she rids the world of demons Anna with help from her dad and friends sets out to build an army of allied nephilim. Things get heated when she reunites with Kaidan, the boy she's in love with. Too bad Kaidan is the son of lust making him nephililm and two nephs are not permitted to fall in love on penalty of death. this was my favorite part: Through the shuffle of noise I heard a voice that made my ears perk up. “Anna!” I hiccuped again, and froze at the sound of that English accent. My head whipped around. My body clenched—if he was really here something had to be wrong. The hanky fell to my lap at the sight of Kaidan jogging up the middle of the terminal, stopping at the end of our row of chairs. Holy crap . . . my legs went numb. People halted their shuffling at the presence of this disheveled young man with wild blue eyes. He stood there, hair falling in his face, staring at me with a bizarre expression of euphoria. All eyes went from him to me and back again. A wide path was cleared down the aisle. “What’s wrong?” I asked. I knew I should stand but it was like my body had gone into shock I—Nothing.” He peered around the area, harried, as if scouting for possible danger. “How did you get through security?” I asked. “I bought a ticket.” He looked out of his element and more handsome than ever in his board shorts, dirty T-shirt, and flip-flops. Just as I’d left him. “You . . . you’re going on this flight?” I was so confused No,” he said, “but those buggers wouldn’t page you. And your phone is off.”" This was an exciting read with heartbreak and victory I just love Kaidan and Anna and I can't wait for the next book.
